Lucie Pachova is a third-round recipient of a OneBeat Accelerator for her project, ‘Sound and Climate Camp’. The project consists of a youth residency with a goal of inspiring young people living in northwestern Czechia to address local social-environmental challenges through creative work with sound and music.

The six day long Sound & Climate Camp will gather 12 young participants from Bílina, Litvínov and Duchcov- small towns situated around the Bílina coal mine. The program offers two principal workshops (podcast production and rap/ electronic music), various sound-oriented activities, games, jam sessions, song-writing workshops, community fires, dance and sports as well as open discussions with guests and locals on the topics of local environmental challenges, active citizenship and community involvement.

The goal of the program is to inspire the young people living in the north-western Czechia to address the local social-environmental challenges through creative work with sound and music. Participants of Sound & Climate camp get involved into the creative sound-based activities leading to a dialog about their surrounding environment, everyday life and diverse relationship networks. The camp seeks to provide participants with the creative tools and guidance to shape their ideas into the results that can be shared with their wider community.
